The Great Poking Attack of Twenty Ten

The name of the Facebook event was [secret] Poke Josh Corken on Sunday @ 6pm and boy, did I get poked! 50 confirmed guests and 54 "maybes" meant they invited a lot of people! I had a total of around 60-70 pokes waiting for me that Sunday night, thanks to my sly roommate, David, and unpredictable friend, Zeb. Notice the "See All" option at the top of the picture below. That is Facebook's way of taking me to another page to display my 3+ pages of pokes!

Why tell you this? Because, pokes matter! You don't have to be good at it, no thinking required and it only takes seconds.

Let's break down the logistics of a poke. Here's a list of meanings behind a poke (but not limited to):
Hey there, neighbor.
I like you.
You're pretty neat.
Well, you poked me, so I guess I have to poke you back.
I think you're cute, but can't tell by just your profile picture, so I'll poke you instead.
I'm still alive. In case you were wondering.
To me, pokes are quite nice. Who doesn't love getting poked every once and a while? Here's to the poke!
